Welcome

Welcome to the website of St Peter’s Cathedral, Adelaide.

Have you ever thought of the candles on a birthday cake as a metaphor for the Spirit-filled Church? It’s a good biblical image – fire. Moses met God at the burning bush. The disciples were filled with Holy Spirit as what looked like tongues of fire appeared on them. One of the great Pentecost hymns has these words: “Holy Spirit, rushing, burning wind and flame of Pentecost, fire our hearts afresh …”
I like John V Taylor’s comments on the Acts 2 reading: “In a new awareness of him (Jesus) and of one another they burst into praise, and the world came running for an explanation.” (The Go-Between God).
It’s with a sense of constant renewal, of living in the overwhelming love of God, of being a place and people to which the world comes running that will inspire our Cathedral 150 vision. Join us next Wednesday night for the second opportunity for Cathedral people to imagine the future together (7pm in the C P Hall).
Welcome to all God’s people as we worship God on this very special day.
